Welcome was warm and convivial, from a host who would look out of place in anything other than white cotton trousers, his laugh lines forged from long summers of the good life, and it's immediately infectious. Even a taste of forced bonhomie is thirsted for, when arriving safely on Italian roads feels like some kind of miracle. The room seems... More

Blown away by the beauty of this area. This small, friendly, hotel is out of the bustle of Santa Margharita but only a short bus ride away, or walk to the beautiful Portofino. It has a guest house feel rather than a big chain hotel. Parking very close (20m) from the reception made it an easy first stop in Italy.... More

First and foremost this hotel is in a superb location to visit Portofino. It is a 5 minute drive or a 30 minute walk into Portofino (you will be lucky to drive in as the police stop cars after mid-day as there is nowhere to park). We stayed here for four nights in the attic room with the massive sun... More

Portofino itself is quite expensive and this 2 star hotel is simply great hub to stop for few days to enjoy the beach and local attractions. Don't expect to see tipical chain hotel similar to Marriott or other brands. It's cozy, home style place with clean & nice bed, aircondition, shower and free wi-fi (which was working just perfect).

The staff and facilities could not have been more nice. We will definitely be back on our next trip to Italy! The entire area was just lovely. The walks to Portofino or to Santa Margherita were both scenic and good for a bit of exercise. We were able to walk to one of the loveliest beaches in the world across... More

We stayed at this hotel for a 3 night visit knowing it is a B&B and we got what expected from booking and looking at pics online. Located conveniently between Portofino and S Margherita Ligure, this hotel is in picturesque Paraggi, along the coastal narrow road with close access to its pretty beach with clear green sea water. Also close... More

We stayed in this hotel for 2 days and left at 7 am as the noise and poor quality of this hotel was not what the photos show. Once we arrived the front desk person walked us up to our room and we immediately asked, where is the small cott for our daughter? He pulls it out of a dresser... More

My sister and had been travelling for a while before we stayed at this hotel. Firstly, the location is perfect if you are looking to get away from the craziness and hustle and bustle of towns/cities/too many people, (because, let's face it, you need a little breather every now and then)! Equally, the hotel is located right between SML and... More
